What babies to KEEP?????

I don't know what to do. I have 2 fish I want to keep one because I love his color the other because he is so little and cute but has GREAT form.

I can't have them all

cute little male I love.


And I love this ones color. So far he is not a marble and I like that.


What male should I keep I have a buyer for the blue and orange. but I like his color WHAT TO DO WHAT TO DO!!!!!

I know the female I want to keep I do not think I will breed these fish I am moving on to big ears. Maybe try and show this female.

i would also keep the first one. but it's all really up to you whether or not you want to part with the fish or not. chose one that you will not regret keeping, if that makes sense. it is awkward refunding people for retracting a sale offer though, but im sure it's all understandable. if blue and orange makes you happy keep it.

customers do like options: 1) offer the other male instead, and note to the interested party that he is a sibling. 2) if not interested, refund money (of course if you're willing to part with blue/orange, then this whole convo is moot).

that girl has excellent caudal spread. wish that dorsal were a bit wider, but what are you gonna do with a plakat? she and the female behind her are gorgeous though.

The person does have the option and they want the blue and orange. I will just keep the cute little marble has always been mine. I will sell the blue and orange.

The fish behind the female is the cute male in photo one.

Thanks yeah I love the little white guy he was a surprise I thought he was a girl but he was so small. I pulled him from the main grow out tank because he was showing interesting color. Then one day I notice he was looking more like a boy and sure enough he is my fav. Thanks guys.

I have a nice pair of big ears it will be interesting .
